Senate Cancels Holiday Recess Over Debt Debate

Ad Feedback

The Senate is just taking one day off for Independence Day, cancelling their usual extended recess due to the quickly approaching August deadline for raising the nation's debt ceiling.

Some in the Senate are upset over the way President Obama has been treating them.

"We ought to sit down and work together. And it shouldn't take the form of press conferences like the president gave last week, where he was essentially this school marm scolding Congress for not getting its job done when, in fact, he is the one who has not stepped up and giving us a proposal. We'd like to see what his proposal is. Let's do it in the light of day, not in secret behind closed door negotiation," Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas said in an appearance on Fox News Sunday.

Cornyn says he's concerned the president may try to force Republicans to vote for a last minute plan they disagree with.
